Probably the only best part of Doha. I love walking along the Corniche after sunset in the summers and anytime during the day in the winters. The water along this sea-side walk is a brilliant blue.
You can see the skyline of Doha from here, and it looks even better in the evenings / night.
This road is always busy and crowded so parking could be an issue. Besides, there's a nice small cafe here so grab a cup of tea / coffee and enjoy it by the sea and the superb skyline. Excellent get-away after office hours.
There are multiple boat rides available and also a few good restaurants here if you're looking for things to do.
But the best thing to do here is the evening jog along the 5 km path !! :)

It's a nice place to walk through, nothing spectacular....I've been there in the winter time, so...the weather was pretty nice, but in summer.....will be too hot...

One of the unique places in Doha, I would say in the Middle East, sometimes I go there alone, sometime with family and sometime with friends. I take my regular long walks at least four days a week, Some times I take a long slow walk, just absorbing the surroundings. I also used to sit simply looking at the skyline. Every visit is unique. Weekends is full of life with families and children, week days specially Sundays are quiet.
A good place to hang around during summer nights. During winter, the malabar tea across the road in the park is tempting. The cleanliness, ambiance, parks, the small work out places, the decorated boats and their faint Arabic music, skyline with the flights taking off and landing every minute at a distance, everything about the place is awesome.

A walk along the Corniche is a must-do for tourists to Qatar. Bring water and a sunhat and pace yourself according to the weather. A winter stroll could ne two hours but in the summer a much shorter walk in the coolers part of the day is recommended. The view is beautiful with many spots for photo's. Benches to sit on. Some access to water. Play areas for children.
